Brownfield News reports

A member of the Senate Agriculture Committee wants to expand rural development opportunities in the next farm bill.

Minnesota Democrat Tina Smith says she’ll be looking for ways USDA can improve the way it meets the needs of rural communities.

“I’m talking about the deep need for reliable high-speed broadband, investing in communities and economic development. Improving access to healthcare and supporting critical access hospitals in rural areas.”
